My research focuses on quantifying macroevolutionary patterns in the fossil record, and reconstructing/understanding evolutionary dynamics within the context of mass extinctions. I am particularly interested in methods for quantifying morphological variation in the fossil taxa and how this variation relates to time (time-series context) and evolutionary history (phylogenetic context).

I've had the pleasure of working on a variety of organismal systems, including (but not necessarily limited to) non-avian dinosaurs and Permian synapsids, but enjoy working with multiple aspects of the vertebrate fossil record.

Current ongoing research projects include:

  • the evolution of body size in dinosaurs
  • diversity and disparity of dinosaurs leading up to the Cretaceous-Tertiary Boundary
  • morphological and ecological diversity of Permo-Carboniferous tetrapods
  • ecomorphology of extant chondrichthyans
  • phylogenetic comparative methods: application to the fossil record
